I pulled all my panels and rolled them up inside the trailer, and duct taped them. the rolls were small enough for one person to move them in and out of the door. no snaking through the door and possibly causing more damage.

Good luck!

You will need 0.032 or 0.040 aluminum at least to countersink Rivets or Screws.
